Luis Abbou Planisi new book is out today!
James Bond: Behind the Tuxedo is the story, in more than 500 pages, of the British Spy, from Fleming’s desk in Jamaica to EON Production’s desk in London. This new project explains how James Bond was created by Ian Fleming and how —and with who and why— 007 has been on the big screen for more than 55 years and counting.
Everything and everybody has a chapter is this book: biographies, Bond Girls, post Fleming books, gadgets, directors, cars, songs, websites, events, objects… but if there is a remarkable thing in this book, this are the interviews with Dame Judi Dench, Bond Girls, film directors and producers, actors, villains, writers, Jack Whittingham’s daugther, Sylvam, and Harry Saltzman’s son, Steven, crew, fans, musicians, doctors and many more people, for your eyes only!
James Bond: Behind the Tuxedo will be also available in audiobook and ebook edition. The audiobook is wonderfully narrated by Mr Morrison Ellis, a British Audiobook Producer and the Narrator from Royal Tunbridge Wells in England.
